Possible options for certification
of prepared powers of attorney
- In English (a local notary certifies the examples of powers of attorney we have prepared).
- The prepared examples of powers of attorney will need to be translated into the state language of your country, and then certified by a notary.
Some countries such as Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Germany accept documents in English.
Translation of powers of attorney into the state language is required in countries such as Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Greece, Russia and so on.
In the process of certification of documents, it is important to take into account the format in which a power of attorney is issued and whether it needs to be additionally apostilled in your country.
Certification of a document in accordance with the terms of the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents is called apostille. This is an international certificate, comparable to notarisation in domestic law. If an agreement is applied between two countries, apostille is sufficient to confirm the validity of the document, which eliminates the need for double certification by a sending country and then by a receiving country.
List of countries that do not require apostille when certifying documents by a notary:
If the powers of attorney are certified in the state language of your country, they must be translated into English by a sworn translator. The originals should be sent by email only when the prepared powers of attorney are certified by a notary, (apostilled if necessary), officially translated into English by a sworn translator.
After receiving the powers of attorney, the process of establishing a company takes about two weeks (the received powers of attorney must be translated into Estonian, and the notary who will establish the company, must familiarise themselves with the documents).
The cost of setting up a company
Each additional member of the company adds 100 EUR to the service cost.
